Description

The Post looks at the alarming trend of pregant women becoming victims of violent homicides, sometimes suffering at the hands of lovers, husbands, or boyfriends. The investigation uncovered over 1,300 cases of pregnant women who were murdered within the past 14 years. Reporters found it difficult to obtain information due to a lack of a tracking system for pregnant women as the victims of homicide. From the questionnaire: "the series presented an overview of the phenomenon nationally, looked at why it has been widely unrecognized, focused on how and why a number of recent and local cases occurred, and noted the legacy of the crimes in the children left behind."
